Listen & Learn

Attend our free Listen & Learns to learn how to handle certain basic legal issues without hiring an attorney. You will receive all the guidance and paperwork necessary to walk out of the Listen & Learn and into the courthouse. Listen and Learns are hosted monthly or quarterly at Legal Aid offices, churches, community centers and other locations throughout North Carolina. All Listen & Learns are completely free, but advance registration is required due to space limitations at most locations. The Listen & Learns will provide you with general legal information and guidance only. The Listen & Learns will not provide you with specific, individual legal advice.
